Abramovich is a symbol of Russia's 'rich debauchery'

Former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev has launched a scathing attack on Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, saying that he is a symbol of Russia's 'rich debauchery'.

Gorbachev also accused the ruling class in Russia of showing indifference to its people.

"They (the ruling classes) are rich and debauched. Their ideal is to be something close to Abramovich. I scorn this idea. I am ashamed of this rich debauchery. I am ashamed for us and the country," the Daily Mail quoted Gorbachev, as saying. dailymail
